So here it is! For The Love of Food’s very first blog post and review (wish us luck!).
On a particular Saturday evening, with an SSC Napoli home game looming over our heads, we decided to try and find a decent pub that would show the game. After a bit of fumbling around, we decided to head to Pomigliano D’Arco, the mecca of pubs and great burgers.
Now let me tell you a thing or two about Pomigliano. Any serious food lover worth his weight must make a pilgrimage to this holy place at least once in their lifetime. Here in the land of Pomigliano, burger gods such as Da Gigione and Dublin Square have been pumping out some of, if not the best and most delicious burgers in Naples.
In the end, we chose Dublin Square pub due to the sure showing of the soccer game. Dublin Square is located in Piazza Garibaldi in Pomigliano, with ample space both inside and seating outside. They even bring out a projector to the piazza to show the game. How cool is that?
For the gang at For The Love of Food, Dublin Square fulfills our 3 expectations for an exceptional pub: delicious, mouth-watering burgers; a respectable variety of beer on tap (VERY IMPORTANT), and a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Also, it has one of our favorite Belgian beers on tap: Kwak.
With a wide variety of burgers to choose from ranging from porchetta to Chianina, the crew decided in unison on the oh so tasty Foxford Burger.
Now pardon me for a second as I describe the Foxford…It starts with a thick and juicy patty topped with a hearty and thick slab of melted provola cheese that we all westerners love. The Foxford is then topped with an even bigger portion of my favorite parmigiana di melanzane (fried eggplants that are cut into thin slices, then baked with tomatoes, basilica, and melty cheese). Take one bite out of this bad boy and you will be engulfed with an array of the melty, cheesy goodness of provola combined with the deliciousness of the parmigiana, which on top of that has even more cheese! Whew! All this washed down with an nice, ice cold pint of Kwak beer and while watching a Napoli game.
Bottom line: We definitely recommend you try Dublin Square with its awesome atmosphere, juicy burgers, and great ice-cold beer.
What to eat: We recommend you start out with the misto fritto as an appetizer, then a nice, juicy Foxford burger with a Kwak beer. You won’t regret it.
Location: Piazza Garibaldi 8, 80038 Pomigliano d’Arco Italy
